Frapin VIP.XO Taking craftsmanship to the highest levels of excellence, Frapin’s style embodies the very essence of Cognac. The whole estate, including 240ha of vineyards, lies in the Grande Champagne area which is regarded as Cognac’s best appellation. Still in original family ownership, the family can trace their vine growing and distilling history back to 1270. Frapin combines the knowledge with well-established methods passed down through the generations to hand-craft cognacs that are exclusively harvested, distilled and aged on their estate. A cognac with rich bronze tones and a natural purity, Frapin XO VIP charms from the first glance. Bouquet: pleasing floral notes and a beautiful aromatic complexity punctuated with subtle woody tones. An overall elegance typical of aged Cognacs from Grande Champagne. After its delicate aromas, its power in the mouth comes as a surprise. XO VIP offers a palate of flavours, revealing in turn chocolate notes, dried fruit, candied fruit, and gingerbread. The expression is sophisticated and complex, with depth, but without ever losing the original freshness of the fruit. Composed with the precision of a sonnet, XO VIP is an ode to the passion behind its creation and flavour. Frapin cognac is, naturally, enjoyed on its own, but also, more unusually, appreciates the company of coffee or chocolate. Some examples : – Tarte Tatin With Apples, honey and lemon – Cheese : Brillat-savarin with truffles, marmalade of grapefruit – Foie gras stuffed with fig, duck carpaccio – Duck steack, foie gras with honey vinegar
